    also have this girl. Shes a little darker then whats showing up in the picture. her head and wings are a little darker then her body as well. Her body isn't white. Not really sure what to call it. I wasn't able to get a real good pic of her. this is the closet I could come to her actual color. the chocolate below her, is she a ripple rather then a barred??

    Hi, thank you. I love having them, they have the best personalities. and I know that I shouldn't have a fav, but my blue female is prob, my favorite.

    I originally thought that the two were Greys, then someone mentioned that they might actually by silvers...lol. The light girl, just don't even have the slightest idea.

    Thanks
    Jessica

    Looks live Lavender, blues and chocolates. probably have more to it than that in the coloring. I'm not into the genetics just love all the colors they come in and their personalities. Google Muscovy central they have colors for ya. http://www.muscovyduckcentral.com/varieties.html
